S Support Efforts to Rescue Abducted School Girls

"Use of force, as the only option, will result in death of numerous girls while negotiation provides for their safe return".

They are expected to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the girls, confirm the presence, composition, scale and disposition of security emplaced in Dapchi as well as in GGSTC before the incident and suggest measures that can lead to the location and rescue of the girls.

"Government should deploy resources at its disposal to take this advantage and ensure safe return of the girls" he said.

I think that is the best way we have been helping the government of Nigeria secure the release of the girls, which we hope, will be done in a peaceful manner.

He said the Federal Government will not rest on its oars, until their wards are safely brought back home.

He also solicited for intelligence sharing among the security agencies to improve security coverage.

The issue of security has become politically charged in Nigeria less than a year before a presidential election.




"Since the inception of this administration, we have remained resolute in our fight against Terrorism and Boko Haram insurgents".

The Dapchi kidnapping occurred despite repeated claims from Buhari, his government and the military that Boko Haram was a spent force, as a result of a sustained counter-insurgency.

Addressing a press conference, Falana said it is intolerable that the same manner of abduction took place few years after the Chibok girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, in Borno state.

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria said Nigerian authorities prefer to negotiate with Boko Haram group which abducted schoolgirls for the release of the hostages rather than resorting to military action.

"But what we are cautioning countries is to look carefully, that the implications of the level of debts, the terms of the debts, and whether the arrangements around the local financing are intact creating jobs, local capacity or the projects being carried out by foreign labour being brought to your country".

President Buhari said he will soon inaugurate a National Food Security Council which he would personally chair.

The exterior of Government Girls Science and Tech College in Dapchi, Yobe State, Nigeria, raided by Boko Haram militants on February 22.
